Netflix Gives a Peek at the Testing Process for Android Devices

Posted Mon Mar 19, 2012 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

Needless to say, there’s a lot going on.

The folks at Netflix have decided to let folks in on just what goes on behind the scenes when it comes to Android. The rollout to Android devices was initially quite slow and still isn’t at the point that everyone would like it to be – especially folks that own incompatible Android phones.

There’s quite a bit of coding that has to happen to make each device work, since Android devices use different hardware, have different screen sizes and even different operating systems. Netflix uses an automated system on an array of devices to run their tests and they even make efforts to ensure that the service works on phones and devices with custom ROMs.

You can find the full details over at the Netflix Tech Blog.
